City Calm Down

Original and similar lyrics
Drinking stolen gin from the rich people's bar next door and awkwardly I'm leaning on the shoulder of the cousin who you choose to ignore and she says won't you calm down city city won't you calm down we're never gonna get to the bottom while there's traffic around Passed a little lonely cleanse If we play our cards right we can be more than friends still Oh so s-u-d-d-e-nly so suddenly ways of calculating, ways of catapulting you and me out of this town city city won't you calm down they'll never know we're in here if we don't make a sound Faster we'll divide all the sense into tiny parcels are you hoping it's tense, girl?

The Load-Out

JACKSON BROWNE "Running On Empty"
(Jackson Browne & Bryan Garofalo) Now the seats are all empty Let the roadies take the stage Pack it up and tear it down They're the first to come and last to leave Working for that minimum wage They'll set it up in another town Tonight the people were so fine They waited there in line And when they got up on their feet they made the show And that was sweet... But I can hear the sound Of slamming doors and folding chairs And that's a sound they'll never know Now roll them cases out and lift them amps Haul them trusses down and get'em up them ramps 'Cause when it comes to moving me You guys are the champs But when that last guitar's been packed away You know that I still want to play So just make sure you got it all set to go Before you come for my piano But the band's on the bus And they're waiting to go We've got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago or Detroit, I don't know We do so many shows in a row And these towns all look the same We just pass the time in our hotel rooms And wander 'round backstage Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd And we remember why we came Now we got country and western on the bus R and B, we got disco in eight tracks and cassettes in stereo We've got rural scenes & magazines We've got truckers on the CB We've got Richard Pryor on the video We got time to think of the ones we love While the miles roll away But the only time that seems too short Is the time that we get to play People you've got the power over what we do You can sit there and wait Or you can pull us through Come along, sing the song You know you can't go wrong 'Cause when that morning sun comes beating down You're going to wake up in your town But we'll be scheduled to appear A thousand miles away from here

I'm Getting Wasted Doing Nothing

Billy Burnette "Billy Burnette"
I'm getting wasted doing nothing My mind is drifting far away I hocked my guitar for a dozen dollar bills I wish that there was some other way I play my songs in a bar down on Main Street Only one I know of for miles around And people get to drinking and they fall asleep And the owner says to move on to some other town So, I just get my guitar and run Until I can find someone to make music I met a girl who works in a drug store Got sky-blue eyes like you've never seen I think I'm gonna grab her and walk on out the door I'm gonna make some music that's just so darn mean

JOELL ORTIZ "Free Agent"

[Chorus Two]

That's What They Say

THE JEFF HEALEY BAND "See The Light"
Well they say you're running all over town Your Gonna put me down Well I don't believe it But that's what they say They say you're playing me for a fool The situation ain't cruel And I should just leave it But that's what they say They say that we should be far apart You're break my poor heart if I stay And I keep trying hard to ignore They tell me more everyday And i don't believe them But that's what they say I don't believe them But that's what they say They say that you've been with other guys You've just been telling me lies Bout those people in places That's what they say They say that I should find me someone Won't be tempted to run To all those handsome faces That's what they say Those people talking they are my friends Don't matter how it depends on you But they keep trying to warn me each day And tell me is what they saying true So tonight I'm gonna follow you round To all those places in town See all the things you doin And the games that you play Cause I don't believe it But that's what they say No I don't believe them But that's what they say Yeah Yeah That's what they say Yeah Yeah That's what they say Trying to ignore it Yeah Yeah That's what they say Trying to ignore it Yeah Yeah That's what they say
